Our History

Indian Hills Camp is an 85-acre campground made up of grassy knolls, bouldered mountainsides, pastures, and oak groves. Rich in history, the campground was once the seasonal home to bands of Kumeyaay Indians known as Tipai. Their presence here can be seen today with over one hundred metates and numerous historical artifacts. When California became a state, the campground at that time was used for agricultural purposes and raising cattle.

Founded in 1960, Indian Hills Camp exists for the purpose of reaching kids for Jesus Christ through camping. Indian Hills serves thousands of people each year through over-night camps, youth and church retreats, scouting, family camping, picnics, outdoor education field trips, sixth-grade camp, Gold Rush Days, and much more.
